Zebras and Swimming Pools - Maybe we can't actually help with everything

Zebras - A to Z Blogging Challenge
​​If you have a zebra in your pool, that's not something we can help you with. I would recommend calling your local zoo, or possibly your mum. Usually when I have a big problem I call my mum.
I know what you're thinking: "Will the zebra doing the backstroke in my pool disrupt my liquid pool cover?" That would be my first thought, too. Thankfully, your liquid pool cover will be much less disturbed by your visitor from the velt than your filter will be.
Flexibility is only one of the features of a liquid pool cover, but it's definitely one of the more important ones. Think about it—what is the main drawback of most pool covers? It's hard to decide, isn't it?
For me it's the having to take it off and put it back on repeatedly. You can buy an automatic pool cover, of course, but it will cost you. And if it breaks? What a pain!
I'm sure there are others who would argue that the worst part of a pool cover is the issue of safety. Pets and children can quite easily become trapped by a pool blanket, and that's a terrifying prospect. Again, with the right amount of cash, you can get a cover that is built specifically to prevent this outcome.
Between that and automating the cover, though, you're not going to have much left for pool snacks. And that's basically the whole point of the cover, right? To help save you money by reducing evaporation and heat loss? Sure, they can stop things from getting in your pool as well. But, in my experience, all the stuff on top ends up in the pool anyway once you pull the cover off. And, if your objective is to save money, you're going to be doing a lot of pulling the cover on and off. Why? Because your pool cover only keeps the heat in while it's on your pool. So all the time you spend practicing your aqua-jogging is essentially money wasted.

You should try telling these facts to the zebra.  It'll probably get so bummed out that it'll go find somewhere less depressing to swim, like the sea around Alcatraz Island.

Don't tell the zebra the good news—that all of these problems can be solved by using a liquid pool cover, like Heatsavr and Ecosavr. No more cumbersome pool blankets, risk of entrapment, or losing valuable coverage time when the pool is in use. Throughout the day your pool will stay covered and safe, saving you time and money. And the money saved isn't a pittance, either; we're talking about up to 40% of your pool's heating costs here. And, come hail or housebreaker, the liquid cover will continuously reform to keep your pool protected.
With a win-win situation like that, you could afford to invite the whole savannah to your backyard. I wouldn't recommend it, but food for thought, anyway.
